The chance of moving the date for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) is high, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said.
Support Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, clarified that this was a direct result of the failure of at any rate 600,000 up-and-comers who have demonstrated revenue to take part, to enroll for the assessment planned to hold between June 5 and 19.
Talking at a virtual gathering with 2021 UTME panel individuals on Friday, he revealed that 1.1 million competitors have so far enlisted for the 2021 UTME, and the board expected around 1.9 million enrollments toward the finish of the activity.
The JAMB supervisor noticed that while 50% of the competitors have effectively enlisted without issue, there was a need to convey everybody along.
He expressed that toward the finish of the gathering with the partners, they would settle on if to move the test forward.
“The chance of moving the test forward is still high, yet that will be resolved after our gathering with partners,” said Professor Oloyede.
He added, “This is on the grounds that around 600,000 up-and-comers who have demonstrated revenue in the test are yet to enroll. There is a need to offer everybody the chance.”
